How We Work to Improve the Health and Quality of Life for the Poor
The Foundation seeks to improve the lives of the world’s poor communities through fundamental ways, each an integral part to relieve suffering and provide a higher quality of life. The following are projects that the Foundation is currently actively involved in:
Development of a Unique Educational Nature Centre
The Foundation is currently acquire land and seek funding to build a novel, self-sufficient educational center in Sri Lanka which will conduct research, data analysis, and develop and educate the public and health are workers on new and best water purification and agricultural practices. Center will also have many novel functions including a mobile operation theater, non-religious meditation center, agricultural and nutrition development center, arboretum, engineering facility for R&D, automated laboratory for testing soil and water quality.
The center is being designed by the University of Manitoba, Canada, department of Architecture and Architects without Boarders. This unique Center will function as a model for “sustainability” (solar powered, organic gardening and farming, locally generated safe potable water, total recycling of waste, etc.)
Center will provide a unique venue for local and foreign students and teachers to experience nature, peace, and learn various aspects of their academic work. The Center will also facilitate locally-relevant social, agricultural, and economic studies, together with sustainability research and obtaining university and college credits for participants through this experience and obtaining credit for their compassionate social service
It will also provide education for schoolchildren in the nation (year around), and access to learning and experiencing nature, natural harmony and clean environment. Through education, the Center will develop and propagate sustainable agricultural and related economic practices, as well as develop novel ways to protect the environmentLearn More

The International Foundation for Chronic Disabilities (IFCD) observes that those health conditions frequently occurring in adults with Chronic Brain Disorders (CBD), often go unrecognized and improperly treated. The reasons for this are complex and involve poorly designed social systems and inadequate training (and lack of access to training) of health professionals, primarily physicians, dentists, and nurses.Learn More
Education Trust Fund for Needy Children
Scholarships: Only requires USD $100/year to sponsor
a child’s education.
The Wimalawansa Education Trust Fund (WETF) is a foundation whose purpose is to provide basic support facilities in primary and secondary education to financially needy students in Sri Lanka, who are bright but have little or no resources to continue their education.
